Re: Medical Professionals (PCM's, Dr's, etc) Making False Statements in Medical Recor
I recently went over my medical record also and noticed the same thing about how much time was spent with me. If it's a 10 minutes appointment they'll actually only spend 10 minutes with you. I also noticed that on something things, especially new medications, it says the doc went over very specific things about the new med. That's never happened to me. It's always been the pharmacy that's gone over things with me. However, the record was actually complete. Nothing was missing from what I could tell which was a huge surprise for me.
Funny tidbit about how ineffective these doctors can be. I was seen in 2006 for a problem. The doctor at the time diagnosed me and sent me to physical therapy. Fast forward 6 years and I'm still being seen for the same problem. I actually had surgery to correct it after an ortho told me what it was... the same thing the doctor in 2006 said it was. So I spent 6 years in pain and on and off medications and in and out of physical therapy for something that could have been corrected. Guess I got what I paid for.
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.
